A little advice.

 

When a little catgirl knocks on your door and she hands you a pair of cat ears and a maid outfit and tells you the world is in peril...

 

PUT IT ON!

_________

EDIT: OMG A DAILY DEVIATION I think I've fainted. 

I just need to sit down for a bit then I'll be back, hopefully with something poignant to say other than just thank you all!

EDIT 2: Now that I've managed to calm down a bit.

This animation took two weeks of work and had as much effort put into it as any short film I have created.  I used GIMP 2 which was actually not recommended to me as the premium software to tackle a project like this.  But it was free and I wanted to do pixel art.  I have more advanced programs like Adobe and Corel Paint and IMO they're not really suited for doing simple pixel art.  I studied animation in college and have not done an animation project in ages and emoticons really speak to me as a medium.  Simple.  Iconic.  Often funny short gags.  The only thing that prevented me from getting into it earlier was not finding software I liked.  GIMP 2 has the simple interface I was looking for in pixel art software that also does animation.  On top of that it has a simple scripting language that allows you to manipulate the speed of the frames and alter them on individual frames, that's pretty handy.  I have to say any project bigger than this GIMP 2 is not suited.  I wish it would do things like let you save and import animations into the frames of another project.  But for short little things it's perfect for me.

I did use Corel to create the paint effects for some scrolling backgrounds and gradual paint fills.  I don't like how GIMP 2 all gradual fills blend the edges and it doesn't have gradual in the paint function.  Also exporting files back and forth is a bit tricky. 

 

Anyway, count on seeing some new stuff from me in the future in this medium.  Cheers!  Catboy Emoticon

This is based on a meme I started a while ago now based on this idea.

 

A little catgirl earing a maid outfit knocks on your door and tells you that you have to put on cat ears and a maid outfit :thumb362390206:

 

You have to do it because the world is in great peril.  There is no time to explain.  Put it on.
